The Real Winners of the 12th GE

The 12th GE has come and gone. Much changes have occurred since then, topping the lists would be BN's loss of its monopoly of the Malaysian Parliament, opposition governments in 5 states, the precarious position of the PM, protests and the impasse with the Royalties, to name a few.

During his first week in office, the Penang State CM had already uncovered some shady land deals concluded during the previous administration. Some of the known cases cited were the development in Tanjung Tokong (E & O Properties) and a package in the vicinity of the Jelutong Expressway (IJM Properties, I think). The latest rumours of course was the one posted by Bangsa Malaysia awhile ago! This rumour has been circulating for a couple of days now. There has been no official response to this rumour. It would be unlikely for anyone in the old administration to come forward with any statement. These are only the tip of the iceberg. According to coffee shop politicians, apparently there are a host of other abuses, an indication that Mr. Clean's government is not so clean!

We are confining ourselves to Penang only. What about the other 4 States? What will their respective administration uncover? Come to think of it, there won't be much to uncover, all shredded and bleached!

All this information were usually forwarded through SMS and whether they were rumours or facts is another issue, the real winners of the 12th GE undoubtedly are the telcos!

Obviously you did not understand my article. Please read again and consult people if you have to. The fact remains that improprieties were discovered! There was no comparison made between the two administrations in my article!
